Climate protection is not a crime!

We stand behind the courageous activists in Basel and Zurich. Climate protection is not a crime! Take a stand for the activists and request their discharge. Sign our urgent appeal now!

On Monday morning, climate activists in Zurich and Basel staged a peaceful protest for a climate-friendly financial center, blocking the entries to the buildings of UBS and Credits Suisse. The police responded with a disproportionate contingent: in Zurich alone 64 activists were arrested and reported. Today, Tuesday, around 80 activists remain in police custody around Switzerland, reports Climate Justice. 

We stand behind the courageous activists and say: Climate protection is not a crime! Show solidarity with the activists and demand their discharge! Sign our urgent appeal now. 

Background: Our two big banks Credit Suisse and UBS continue to finance corporations that supply fossil energy. In 2017 alone, Credit Suisse and UBS financed the equivalent of 93.9 million tons CO2 - twice as much as Switzerland emits in a year!1
